Went through several rounds for a managerial position at a company and had one more round before a presumed offer.

Just got an email from the recruiter stating that the position was filled internally, but they want me to take another position on the same team as a Principal, but because of "internal team equity", the original salary range would now be lower (without saying exactly by how much).

I really liked the company, by it kind of feels like a rope a dope. What would you do?

Am interviewing for a director, product role at a SaaS unicorn fintech. Currently a principal/associate partner in a boutique strategy firm, have 16 years of total work experience. Would you know if I am interviewing at the right level? (Still learning how the levels in a product organization match against consulting levels). Any pointers?

I am torn between moving to a product director role (unicorn fintech) vs continuing my current role (principal at a M&A strategy boutique, can make partner in 1-2 years) vs moving to corporate development roles (no offers yet). I have 16 years of experience, recent 4 yrs of which in M&A commercial due diligences. I see all three as attractive options, but is it a good pursuit to take a product director role at a recently turned fintech unicorn vs the other options?

Hi Fellow LS Fish,

I’m looking to transition to industry but I see a lot of SM positions require 5+ years of experience.

I have 1.5 YoE with a PhD…is that realistic for SM, and do biotechs / pharma care a lot about YoE?

Thanks!
